Obama Campaign Touts Support for Gay Marriage

President Barack Obama's campaign is using his support of gay marriage to draw a contrast with Republican rival Mitt Romney.

The morning after Obama publicly embraced same-sex marriage,
his campaign released a web video titled "Mitt Romney: Backwards
on Equality."

The video opens with Obama saying same-sex couples should be
allowed to get married, followed by a clip of Romney saying
Wednesday that he opposes gay marriage and favors rolling back some rights for same-sex couples.

The video also tries to portray Romney as out of touch with the
majority of Americans, saying even former Republican President
George W. Bush supported civil unions.

Obama aides hope Obama's support of gay marriage will energize
Democrats, though they acknowledge the divisive social issue could
hurt the president with socially conservative independent voters.
